12 Days of Christmas

This card was made for my BIG idol Inge from the Netherlands... some of you know that Inge is one of the very first original Magnolia Design Team Members. Oh my gosh.. i was always drooling over her creations .. her coloring i and her style how to layer patterned paper is something i have studied for many hours. So when Inge asked me if I would be up for a Christmas gift exchange (in German "wichteln") i was like .. oh my gosh.. no question :-) but than the pressure was on lol.. . All the papers are super sparkly.. the flowers are with glitter made since the sketch asked for some horizontal elements i picked 2 strings of my Raspberry Ribbons August Paisley kit. All the greens you will get in this kit are perfect to use this time of the year. The sticker (Making Memories) "12 days of Christmas" reminded me kind of like a sign in a train station, so added that one behind Tilda . I think the packages Tilda is sitting on work well with the thought i had.
I submitted this card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge - we have to make something using greens and reds. Now for the sketch.. i need to give credit for that one to .. i saw it on her blog and printed it out.. it was too late to use this card on the challenge blog because i did not want to show the card before Inge received her present.

taataaa... and this time i even made a note what Copics i used to color my images Tilda and packages in :-)
Face: E000, E00, R20
other: E31, E34, E27, E50, Y23, R27, R14, G99, 0, YG93, Y21, E25, YG95, W5, W3
Background/Airbrush: E50, Y23, E11
Now the best for last lol....
